SUNDAY, JULY 25
THE SLOW-ASS LAST DAY, a.k.a. “FAMILY DAY”
Luke Y Thompson covers Hollywood events at the Con for Deadline:
10:00-11:00 AM: Emily The Strange. So every year, they promise an announcement of a potential movie deal for this goth-chick fave. This year? Maybe. Or not. Room 3
10:00-11:00 AM: Smallville Screening and Q&A. Apparently, this next season is going to be the final one for the Superman prequel series. I did not know that. Which makes this the last official Comic-Con panel. Some of you might find that important. Plus Tom Welling’s coming. Ballroom 20
10:00-11:00 AM: Sideshow Collectibles. Hey Sideshow: I bought your expensive dolls back when they were around $60. Now that most of them are almost twice that, I can’t. And if you keep this up, I will not care. Just so you know, there’s a recession on. Room 32AB
11:45 AM-12:45 PM: Comic-Con Debut: International Hit Merlin. If my girlfriend were coming to Comic-Con, she’d be first in line for this. If I attend the panel, it will primarily be on her behalf, as I can’t quite understand why this show so drastically rewrites Arthurian legend as to make Merlin a kid serving Prince Arthur. But star Colin Morgan will show up, and I know firsthand that that means a lot to some. Room 6BCF
12:00-2:00 PM: Browncoats Fan Group. Obsessive fans of Joss Whedon’s SERENITY/FIREFLY meet at this thing. I’d advice everyone else to stay far, far away. Room 32AB
12:30-1:15 PM: American Dad. Good morning USA! … Read More »
Brian Austin Green is finalizing a deal to join ABC’s veteran dramedy Desperate Housewives for a major recurring role next season. The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum will play Keith, a new contractor and charming playboy who turns up the heat on Wisteria Lane. Green, repped by APA and manager Tracy Samuels, is expected to appear in as many as 8 of the show’s first 10 episodes. He landed the role after meeting with creator Marc Cherry last week. Green is the second major new addition to Desperate Housewives‘ next season so far. Vanessa Williams recently joined the cast of the show as a new regular. Green is coming off a sci-fi streak, having co-starred on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and recurred on Smallville.
